Top 10 Attractions To Visit At Animal Kingdom

Rounding out our top 10 attractions series is the beloved Animal Kingdom park. Breathtaking is the first word that comes to mind when describing this Disney park. The park has truly transformed into a jungle oasis and you feel as if you’ve been transported into a world far away from Lake Buena Visita. The Tree Of Life is one of the most gorgeous park icons full of incredible details you cannot miss. With the addition of Pandora, Animal Kingdom is truly a one of a kind experience. It’s incredibly hard to describe if you have not seen it in person. It’s something I recommend you do at least once in your life.

Aside from its utter beauty, Animal Kingdom is home to some of the best top attractions on Disney property. Here you will learn all about the must-see and do parts of Animal Kingdom. The best part? It does not take a whole day to experience all the best Animal Kingdom has to offer. If planned correctly, you can see all the best the part of this park in a half-day, which makes it the perfect park for a day you want to do something outside the park as well.

The Top 10 Animal Kingdom Attractions

1 – Flight of Passage

Yes, I feel like I’m repeating myself, but Flight of Passage is a one of a kind attraction. There is no attraction on Disney property that comes close to this experience. Set in the world of Avatar, guests are taken on a flight on a Banshee and whisked through the breathtaking landscape of Pandora.  You will not believe your eyes. I’m going to stop here because I do not want to spoil any part of this for you. If I could only visit one attraction on my next visit to Disney World, this would be my choice.

2- Na’vi River Journey

Continuing on our journey through Pandora brings us to our next attraction, the Na’vi River Journey. This slow-paced boat rides sails through Pandora’s rainforest. Take a peek at the gorgeous landscape, plants, and animals. The lighting of this attraction is hard to describe but adds to the allure of the experience.

3 – Kilimanjaro Safari

After your visit to Pandora head on over to Africa for a chance to see some of the world’s most beautiful animals up close.  The Harambe Wildlife Reserve is home to 34 species living in 110 acres of  open plains, wetlands and rocky landscapes. It allows you to see many wild animals in their natural enviornment.

4  – Maharajah Jungle Trek

One of the animal walking exhibits I highly recommend is the Maharajah Jungle Trek home to Asian tigers, 50 species of free-flying birds, and many more. The up-close animal encounters are what help Animal Kingdom stand apart from the other three theme parks, therefore, making this one of must-see attractions during your next visit.

5  – Kali River Rapids

If you enjoy small thrills and a chance of getting soaked, Kali River Rapids is for you. Disney’s version of the classic water rapid ride does not disappoint. As you travel you a lush landscaped you are set on a water adventure the likes of which you will never forget.



6 – Expedition Everest

No trip to Animal Kingdom is complete without a ride on the infamous Expedition Everest. Some words of advice – be on the lookout for the Yeti I hear he’s still pretty upset people are traveling through his village.

7 – Dinosaur

Since I’m not certain how to describe this attraction without spoiling it, here’s a description directly from Walt Disney World “A paleontologist recruits you for a secret mission to bring a 3.5-ton Iguanadon back to the present. There’s just one problem—the giant meteor that wiped out life on Earth is on the way!” This may be intense for some younger guests even if they meet the height requirement {spoken from experience}.

8 – TriceraTop Spin

TriceraTop Spin is a fun carnival-themed ride that is simple at heart but big on fun.

9 -Tough To Be A Bug

Experience the movie It’s A Bug Life up close and personal in this 3D experience attraction. It is a multi-sensory experience designed to give you the chance to hang out with the characters from It’s Tough To Be a Bug is ways your never thought possible

10 – Conversation Station

Before you head home for the day, be sure to grab a train over to Conversation Station. You will get a first-hand look at all the work the Disney team of animal experts does day in and day out. It’s pretty incredible. You will get to see the top of the line veterinarian car the animals at the park receive and also find out ways you can help animals avoid extinction. There’s also an adorable petting zoo that hopes to reopen when it’s safe to do so.
